Rohdinkuja, 17:34

 
 

When we moved here we noticed a pair of doves used to arrive in the Spring and spend their summer sitting on the telephone wire outside our house. Telephone wires, I used to think. Do telephone wires still exist? I never really found out if they do or not, or the purpose of the wires if they don’t carry phone conversations.

Broadband by wire?

One summer only one of the doves returned, and it has come on its own every summer since. Doves, like swans, mate for life, and this one now seems doomed to fly back and forth on its own until it dies.

Doves can live up to twenty years.
